Question about Radio Communications

1 Answer

Grounding I have a 96 Freightliner and a Magnum S9 radio and everyone says when I transmit it sounds like I am talking out of a hole except when I run in rain or in the morning when the dew is on then they say I sound great and they can hear me for a long way away. Would this be a ground issue and where would the issue be? Do i need to ground the radio or the antanas better and how do you suggest? Thankyou for your help.

I'm almost guessing that you have mounted the antennas on the mirrors and they may have rubber bushings for mounts. you may need to get some ground straps and run them from the bases of each antenna to ground... leave some slack so the door is able to open and close properly.

Magnum s980 stopped giving me sound from speaker.also transmit scratchy.

Pour gasoline inside of it and set it on fire for 5 minutes. When done crank up every thing that can be adjusted inside for more modulation and power. Cheap radio. CB junk.

Wat power does this radio push

Generally All CB Radios will only push 4 watts. This is only if you have a SWR of 1:1

Magnum 257 it will not transmit on lsb or usb it will on am and f

With SSB you have to put audio on the carrier you cant just key the microphone and expect it to output a signal unless you talk into the microphone at the same time this is how SSB works.
So if you talk and the meter starts to move then its ok, if you talk or whistle and nothing moves then the circuit on the SSB side of the unit is faulty.
